    From it’s darkness The night assembles a scene of a glimmering ballerina twirling flowers falling from every kick and pirouette From her arms come daisy petals flowing to the stage like feathers and from her eyelashes drips pollen rushing to flow down her round face to bypass her lips of...

    My skin is dull and gray That’s all it seems to be And when I look across the bay I know he’s looking back at me The lighthouse glimmers far away and I watch it from my seat It’s pleading for me to stay But I have someone I must meet The water pools across my knees The wind flees ...

    An acid tear rolls down my cheek I feel it burn my skin My shout is rather meek as it peels away my chin More tears roll down my face Three tears from either side They turn my cheeks to lace and split my lips open wide I wonder for a moment then If my pain is truly real and if these te...

    To remember the forgotten, take two deep breaths and a Tylenol And on that first breath, squeeze your eyes closed A memory is played behind the eyelids The sound pumping through black imaginary speakers Echoing through your skull Through your eyes Through your ears And I can remember him ...

    Why do we do this to ourselves? This fuel is made from heartbreak, and it gets more potent every single day; yet we live on. She will break under her own weight, or so she says. Crumble as if her bones never meant anything. She will scream and cry, press a pen to paper and, How do you wri...

    The skies are dark and gray, the way some people love them to be. Like me. I love them to be that way. I need your lighthouse to guide me, to show me to the shore. But you’ve been gone so long your lights flickered out. I used to play this game, when I was little, where I would crawl ...

    I catch myself remembering, and I scold myself. You would grab my waist, as if afraid I would run, whispering for me to hold the wheel. The car would lurch for a moment as your hands left their place, and I would catch it as if it were the bond between life and death. In those moments, I w...

    I was confronted by a sullen monster; its blue eyes, and screeching roar. Scars ran up and down its arms from when it fought other monsters, different monsters, monsters who bubbled and popped within the beast; who stewed upon its negative waves as they sank deep into each pore of it. Thei...

    His lies drop from between his eyes, dribble onto the awaiting pavement. They are stained red, to match his hands. His face is a kaleidoscope of gemstones, shining and glimmering, but forever a blurry mess of color. He turns around and around and around. Somehow, he goes nowhere. If you t...

    Everyday I drive by the same tree It is small, but alive. And in the Fall it sheds its leaves in the Winter it braces against the snow in the Spring it grows anew and in the Summer it ripens. So I watch and so I see. I wonder if anyone looks at me and sees the same....

    You glow as if you have drunk from the curve of the moon, your lips cupping its crater-ridden surface. As if surrounded by a thousand glittering fireflies as they brush you in their own personal fire. So you glow. On your back, you carry a mountain of gems. Encased in stars, envel...

    My legs, they skip over river rapids. My feet, they burn with a long-lived desire to run. My shoulders, they ache with feathers too heavy. My neck craned, to match my winged shoulders. My fingers, they are all frozen. My fingers, they’re so cold. My arms, they are strongest ...

    I’m pretty young, and I don’t know much, but I know that I used to be afraid of the sunset; and I used to hide in the basement so I wouldn’t cry in front of my worried parents. It would fill the entire front room, the popsicle-colored light, brushing watercolors over...

    You are porcelain. Your arms are smooth and white, unable to bend. Your cheeks are a blossoming red, and they’re forever stained. As you stand, you fall, and you are shattered. You must remember your soul is marble. You will be repaired with gold, and forever understand that you are...

    If you’ve ever looked at a gem close enough, you can begin to see its clarity and edges.  Everything about a gem can be compared to that of a body.  It looks soft, yet rigid in all the right places.  The light can dance across its faces and glimmer down its spines, but it can never truly reac...

    Sio, if anything, was a huge jerk.  He spent his days alone, and rightfully so.  His passions were classic, cliche even: surfing, tanning, women, and everything else a California boy would want to do.  He left no room in his life for friends, or a good relationship of any kind.  His mother was...

    Lights flashed above her eyes, making impressions that she could see even after her eyes were closed. One, two, three… She lost count, struggling to keep a hold on reality. Nurses shouted unnecessary commands from all directions, and white seemed to surround everything. Breathing hard, a male nu...

    There are some things that are hard to explain: Death to a child, mental illness, or puberty. Sometimes there are things you just don’t explain to anyone. You can’t. They’ve hurt you so much that you don’t want others to know. You don’t want them to know what it is if it happens to the...

    Abby She was quiet. I don’t mean like nerd quiet, I mean like quiet by choice. Her voice was the most soothing thing anyone had ever heard. Assuming they had heard it at all. Nothing could compare to Abigail Jones Castice’s voice. If you heard it once, everyone else’s voice sounded...

    What strange words they are. Me, her, she… It. Some ignorant humans even call this figure of mine a ‘He’ or a ‘him’. No no, I am definitely a female. I cannot reproduce, but I am a female. The dead cells emerging from my skin that humans call ‘hair’ is brown. Mousey brown, in fac...
